1 SESSION 2: Introduction to the SU & Warwick Sport Zoë Buckland, Sports Officer
2 Why do I need to know about the SU and Warwick Sport? Warwick Sport is a joint partnership between the SU and the University’s department of PE and Sport. ALL fees go into a budget which is spent ONLY on Sport and related activities. The SU provides resources in student activities, and also the Sports Officer – however, none of these are paid for by Warwick Sport memberships or fees.
3 Warwick Sport in 2013 10,300 students members of Warwick Sport 6,200 students involved in 70 sports clubs£65,000 grant from the University£612,600 costs to cover each yearFrom staffing costs, insurance, BUCS, club grants, professional services, facilities maintenance, etc.
4 Warwick SU in 2013 6,200 students involved in 70 sports clubs 11,250 students involved in 250+ societies250 student staff working across our 6 F&B outlets760 SSLC reps & 9 faculty reps55 student councillors including 4 liberation officers£150,000 of student house deposits won back by our Advice Centre in 2013£7m turnover 12/13
5 Tricky FinancesRely on £2m/year from the University to run everything we do£1,200/day rent – ouch!Last year spent £2.792m on student activities, (societies and sports clubs), the advice centre and on representation.In short, we don’t have a lot of money!
6 Why are you telling me this? We are one of the largest Students’ Unions in the country, yet have one of the smallest staff teams!Ridiculous/unsustainable right? Right.Things take a little longer to process and organise then we all might hope, but it’s better than the alternative…… cutting Sports Clubs and Societies and giving up our Student Representation.

24 FinanceCan’t withdraw money from your account without filling in a form.The 2 most common forms:Money Requests (used to withdraw money or pay for goods and services); andSales Invoice Requisitions (used to raise invoices, typically to get sponsors to deposit money into your account).All forms can be found at
25 Finance – how long do payments take? Typical timeframes that you can expect for payment after filling in forms:Money Requests:BACS payments take 3-4 working daysCash takes 1-2 working days (collected from Finance Office)Cheques take 1-2 working daysSales Invoices:Money deposited into your account within 3-4 working days (except if you are sponsored by Kelseys!).
26 Finance – how long do deposits take? To deposit money into your account:Go to the Finance Office (2nd Floor of SUHQ on the RHS) and hand the cash to Paula on the front desk.Make sure your cash is counted (and bagged where depositing coins).You will be handed a receipt – keep this safe!The money will then be deposited into your account on the next working day.
27 Finance – how do I pay for things using club money? The usual process for paying for goods is that an exec member will pay for the items upfront and then reimburse themselves from the club funds via a Money Request form.This is fine (although double-check you can be reimbursed for the goods you want to purchase if they total more than £100).If you don’t want to/can’t individually pay for the items first (and then reimburse yourself), we have a Union credit card that can be used to pay for the goods/services directly instead. This requires a Money Request form to be used.
28 Finance – Top Tips Things which might make the process take longer: You need 2 exec signatures on the formsAll forms exceeding £100 need the Sports Officer’s signatureFinance Office opening hours are 10am – 3pm weekdaysIndividuals who require payment (DJs/guest speakers etc.) need to be registered with HMRCGet the correct codes for the forms!Charity Law!
